I think it depends on what kind of vehicle is in reference. My opinion... when it comes to trucks, the U.S. can't be touched. Same for large SUVs. The U.S. is also good a brute power and fast, and for the right price (compared to equally fast European). New 160 MPH Vette's can be bought for less than $50k that keep up with most of Europe's $150k+ cars.skiing1974 wrote:not sure about that Lantana07...what would you compare BMW to that is made in US? lady from Jeep the other day told me I should get Viper, when I told her I am returning my car and getting an euro sports car.

Fred wrote:Germany has been the champion at sport orientated sedans. But the U.S. has caught up with that one, and at a bargain. This could be a big market for U.S. makers. Europe loves a fast grocery getter, and they can still afford them. U.S. makers should attack this market. Take for example, the '09 CTS-V (I admit I am partial to this car, as I have an older version of it). GM outdid itself with the new $65k CTS-V.
I'll have to stand my ground on this one. We own both a BMW 3 series, and a CTS-V. As long as GM/Caddy continues the V series line, I find it hard to look back.Brian wrote:Disagree. The US hasnt even come close to the entry level sports sedan- BMW 3 series, Infiniti G35, MB C300, lexus IS300, Acura TL, and then of course, only US entry - Caddy CTS.
This I would agree with.Brian wrote:Bottom line - Big 3 have some serious overhaul to do and it wont/cant be done without letting them get their hands spanked and the UAW dictating "rules" that go against a capitalistic system or a bailout by the govt.
